Basically, play ret if you feel like it and you enjoy it, but your going to have to find regular people to play with and convince them your good enough to justify taking the comp hit, and at low ratings, it doesnt matter AT ALL. unless people have 2200-2400 achievs to link you tell them to stuff it. Skill >comp. until you reach a level where nearly everyone is playing there class near the top of its potential it doesnt matter."
Saw this is another post and decided to steal it to add it to this, because it is completely true. Thank you in advanced for reading my <removed>.
Oh, clearly fail troll. I got to 1600 rating when ret's had 30 second seals. 1750 with ret in wrath. Mainly I have pve'd not going to lie. I have gotten more serious about pvp this season and last, and I don't pretend to be the greatest thing since sex. It's not much but I have been over 1500 rated in 2's 3's and 5's. However what they nerf in pvp affects pve. Last season I played feral druid/Boomkin in pvp. Ret's are not a viable class past a certain point. Unfortunately yes it is because we have been nerfed as well as melee in general fury/arms warriors are feeling the hurt in Rbg's too. Eventually you will have to face what thousands smarter than you have already realized. I wouldn't choose you over a rogue even if your gear was better, and nether would anyone else. Unless of course you have a consistent group of friends or friend willing to carry you. We are a broken class, and you sir are a douche. Soo, Good day sir have fun fapping. ^^
Ret does seem to be missing something. I played this here Paladin in Cataclysm and dueled 85s here and there for fun. I could pop wings, trinket proc x 2, ring proc, landslide proc and kill most of the semi-geared ones. I'm not speaking in terms of skill, but just sheer lack of damage compared to back then.
Shrug. It is what it is I guess.
